Asphalt and bitumen products

Importing and supplying bulk bitumen as well as manufacturing asphalt and specialist bitumen products

Our modern bitumen emulsion plant produces high-performance bitumen emulsions for chip sealing. The semi-continuous plant uses state-of-the-art process control.

Our plant also produces some of the best-performing bitumen in the country with synthetic polymers and additive blended in to improve durability and engineering performance. The plant also converts bitumen into hot and emulsified products ranging from general purpose emulsified bitumen to specialised spray seal, slurry seal systems, crack seal and colour coatings.

We have also been manufacturing asphalt since the 1970s. From our 12 permanent and two mobile production plants we use the latest technology to blend and mix aggregate, bitumen, modifiers, polymers, fillers, and pelletised fibre.

We cover the complete spectrum of asphalt mixes, from hard-wearing rut resistant mixes like SMA (stone mastic asphalt) to open mixes designed for lower noise and better water dispersion.

Bitumen and asphalt quality is assured through our IANZ-registered laboratories that design all formulas and test samples in-house to ensure they meet quality and performance specification.
